THE MEMORY SCANNER

Can't think of the name of that arcade game you used to play? This is the place to ask!

THE MEMORY SCANNER

This thread is an idea taken from this thread. Anyway I made it in order to help the users find games they can't remeber their titles like the thread above. Anyway let's start:
I want to find a game with the following characteristics:
-It was a Shooter/Flying Vertical Game
-You had an aircraft and it had 1 characteristic: you were gathering armor parts and if you collected a certain number of parts (like wings) the aircraft would transform into a flaming bird, like a Phoenix !!! Another characteristic was that you could remove the armor parts and then they would fly around you and shoot whenever you shoot.
So if you have the title of this game, that would be fine.

Sorry, but the answer is no. This is not a quiz. I mean I know how Alpha Mission II is (I have written a whole review about it). In fact this game was like alpha mission. You had your aircraft and while you were flying you could get some armor parts (wings, cannon etc) which could be put ON your aircraft OR fly AROUND it. On that way you had an aircraft with wings and cannon flying around it and shoot at the same time with your shots. I remember the titlescreen of the game had this Phoenix your aircraft transforms into...

LOL, I thought it was like a guessing game and you were giving me an easy one to start off with. So you really do need help finding this game? If that's the case then it's time to get serious.

Indeed this is the game I am looking for. Well done :clapping: . Thanks mate. By the way I am looking for another one at the moment. Details:
-It was a 2.5D fighter and there were 3 characters: a martial arts master, a football/rugby player called Bubba (no, he isn't Bubba Smith) and a girl.
-Bosses: the 1st boss was a Cueball and the 2nd one was called Fatso.
Any ideas ??
